I digress. Have you noticed that lots of old films are rated way lower than what they should be? I mean, Double Indemnity (1940s) a PG? It is about a woman who... MURDERS HER HUSBAND!!! And another film with a similar plot is The Letter (also 1940s) which is a U. I think that just because they are in black and white, they are not rated properly and furthermore, I think it has something to do with gender inequality. (Bit of a rant coming up...) if a man did what Bette Davis did in The Letter, I am sure it would be rated for an older age group. And plus, they think that because there is more talk than actual violence people won't notice that Barbara asks her boyfriend to strangle her husband and dump his body on a train track!
So, there is my little rant! On a lighter note, look at this adorable pic of Doris Day and James Stewart on set for The Man Who Knew Too Much. She gives a spellbinding performance as the mother of a kidnapped boy which really is quite wonderful. She gives a similarly good performance in Love Me Or Leave Me. Don't let anyone tell you she is just all froth! The song Que Sera, Sera was written for the film, and it later became her trademark song.
